"Gratitude in the attitude"
Why I chose to be in the helping profession
Welcome to my practice! I am a compassionate and empathic clinician with extensive experience working with the Jewish community, helping people to heal and grow. I graduated Columbia University Graduate School of Social Work in 1991. My clients are 18-96 yrs old and are mostly women who struggle with depression, anxiety, or were traumatized from having experienced or witnessed frightening incidents or accidents. I will also help you develop coping skills for work related stress, relationship issues, eldercare issues, and grief and loss.
The modalities I use for treatment are CBT, DBT, interpersonal, psychoanalytic, and critical incident stress debriefing therapies that are custom tailored to what you might need. I will be meeting with you via Telehealth platforms such as Zoom, or in person for assisted living facility residents. I accept Cigna (open access plus), United Healthcare (choice plus), Oxford, Medicare, check, or cash via Zelle or Venmo.
In addition to psychotherapy, I refer home care aides to seniors who need personal care or just companionship. I also teach classes for the 55+ community on preventing cognitive decline and fall prevention. I offer this service to independent living and assisted living facilities as well as other senior residences at their clubhouses.
